Went out for an early but chilly run this morning-it was about 37* when I hit the trail. I wore the perfect amount of clothes and did not overheat once I got going- wore shorts & my under armor long sleeve shirt.
Ran a comfortable 6.5 miles in a about an hour, I've also got a 5k race on Turkey day and need to get acclimated to the colder temps.
It was also neat watching the mist rise off of the river and hearing all the birds chirping & singing and I even saw a deer on the trail. It was a very relaxing sat. morning run.
Sounds idyllic Good luck on your T'giving day race!
Did a CrossFit WOD at home. Pull ups, clean&jerks, and air squats. Not quite as full throttle as it would have been at the gym, but a great work out anyway.
A friend twisted my arm into doing the Holiday Classic in Redlands. It is a 15K (~9 mi) on Dec 4th. I'm not really expecting a PR - haven't run much more that 7 miles in the last couple of months, but it will be fun.
The next "big" race will be the Death Valley 1/2 first Sat in Feb. I've run this twice before. It is a small race on hard top, but the scenery is gorgeous. Last time I ran it I had really severe foot and leg cramps, the kind that twisted my foot so badly I could only walk on the outside of my feet. Since then I have figured out the problem (insufficient sodium, contrary to the potassium hypothesis) so I bet I'll do a lot better .
SW, want to come down for this one? There is also a 10K.
Good morning everyone Just had to share this... I didin't go for my run on Saturday night as we had company stop in. So all day yesterday i was dreading my run for some reason. Finally got to it at 6 last night and by 30 seconds running i was looooooooooooving it!!!
I ran for 11 minutes in total again and my dogs were happy i was happy, the world seemed peaceful.... I am loving this feeling. I think as much about getting in physical shape as i do weight loss now.
Have a great day everyone
